“Sylvia had on the wrong stockings for her dress, and her lipstick was all crooked, so I think things are pretty grim.”

Lovely, foolish Sylvia Colesborough knew him only as a voice on the telephone. It told her how she could earn the money she had lost at cards. She enlists her reluctant friend, debutante Gay Hardwicke, to help her earn this money, and safeguard her husband’s reputation into the bargain.
